America’s Most Thrill-Seeking Cities

467303269

Who lives on the edge? You know, the kind of person that really relishes in risk and the promise of adventure.

LivingSocial wanted to know where the gutsiest guys and gals lived in the US and what they did for that rush of excitement.

To answer the question, we looked at all of the most adventurous deals and escapes (think race-car driving, hot air ballooning, flying lessons, rock climbing, race entries, surfing and diving, etc.) purchased this year by LivingSocial shoppers.

While sporty states like Colorado made the cut, the top adventure-seeking city will surprise you!

Topping our list was the City of Brotherly Love. Yep, Philadelphia is the city that seeks the most thrill — perhaps everyone there is of the Rock-strength mentality? Beyond Philly, Southern California is home to the second, third and eighth place cities and counties (San Diego, LA and Orange County), making California the top state. And in the age old East Coast/West Coast rivalry, it’s close, but the West Coast is home to slightly more thrill seeking cities/counties including San Diego, LA, Denver, Orange County and Phoenix.

Here are the cities and areas that are home to the most thrill seekers – no double-dog-dare required:

1.       Philadelphia, Penn.

2.       San Diego, Calif.

3.       Los Angeles, Calif.

4.       Denver, Colo.

5.       Washington D.C.

6.       Chicago, Ill.

7.       Atlanta, Ga.

8.       Orange County, Calif.

9.       Miami, Fla.

10.     Phoenix, Ariz.

 

The top five thrilling-seeking states are:

1.       California

2.       Pennsylvania

3.       Colorado

4.       Illinois

5.       Georgia

 

One thing most these thrill-seekers can agree on – no matter where they live — is taking to the water for a shot of adrenaline. The top four adventure deals include: kayaking, deep-sea fishing, and whitewater rafting.

No matter where you live, put yourself to the challenge by checking that next adventure off your bucket list. LivingSocial’s deals may be just the ticket.

Show Business is Our Business

New York City is one travel destination that never gets old. While the sights and shopping rank high among tourist to-dos, no trip to the Big Apple is complete without soaking in a Broadway show. And right now LivingSocial has your ticket to the most talked about shows in the Theatre District at a terrific value – those Junior Mints at intermission won’t feel like such a splurge after all!

Check out our NYC Theatre Guide, featuring more than 25 unique plays and musicals. Enjoy modern renditions of classics, like Mamma Mia! and Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, or immerse yourself in something new, such as If/Then starring Frozen’s Idina Menzel or You Can’t Take It With You with James Earl Jones and Rose Byrne. Not to mention 50 Shades! The Musical — yup, there’s that too.

And because you’ll need a cool place to crash post-show, peruse our great hotel offers in NYC. Restore and rest up – you’ll be having a LOT more to see and do tomorrow!

Glow & Flow with #ZapPose

Our inner yogi glows were flowing last Thursday, as we teamed up with Zappos to put on the Flow & Glow yoga event in Las Vegas.

Led by Katie Brauer, a yoga guru with more than two decades of experience on the mat, we welcomed hundreds of consumers at the Zappos headquarters for a night of yoga – think downward dog in the dark.

Attendees stayed balanced and hydrated with Suja organic cold-pressed juice, and browsed apparel and accessories from Zappos’ top yoga brands, such as Cozy Orange, Lucy, and Gaiam.

Mats filled up in hours of the announcement on LivingSocial, but 50 lucky fans who could not attend won prize packs through our #ZapPose Twitter Sweepstakes. Giveaways included comfy and chic essential yoga essentials such as Soybu headbands and Manduka towels.

Wish you could have gotten your glowing sun salutation on? Live vicariously through some of the event photos below or head over to Pinterest, where we’ve pinned some of our favorite yoga inspirations.
